[MySQL] is the database used in all our charts as a data store right now.

Chart Details

This chart is fully based on the Kubernetes Chart found.

It uses version 0.0.5 of our own docker image.

Our central repository is located at:, please configure this in your helm installation (via helm repo add). Then you can download and install this chart using the usual helm procedure (see Using Helm).

Installing the chart

The installation-instructions can be found on the above mentioned Using Helm page.


The following tables lists the configurable parameters of the SonarQuebe chart and their default values.

Parameter Description Default
cpu The CPU resource limit 200m
memory The RAM resource limit 512Mi
databaseName The name of the database test
databaseUser The user of the database test
databasePassword The password of the database user test
databaseCharset The Charset used in the database utf8
databaseCollation The Collation used in the database utf8_unicode_ci
persistence.path The path where the data is stored /data/mysql

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install.

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

$ helm install --name my-kube-lego -f values.private.yaml kube-lego-x.x.x.tgz

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml


To be able to keep stateful data in the mysql kubernetes container, the following path is used:


Tip: This path should be adopted for each database instance you set up (eg. for each application)

Right now, we do use HostPathes, which do not work in a real cluster environment (like AWS or GCE). Please adopt this one to your own needs.


  • Right now SonarQube is using a MySQL version of 5.7 (this is a hardcoded requirement for MySQL), but for other Charts, we could use later versions (MariaDB)
  • Use a HA/Cluster version of MariaDB/MySQL
